"Today, our third hike here in as many weeks. Wildflowers still great, especially along stream beds. Saw Lewis' Monkeyflower (Mimulus lewisii) for 3rd time in 40 years. Delphinium bloom just incredible but lost on many as they are often buried in lush lupine stands this year. 3 pink lupine on the Roundtop outlet stream!

Have hiked the Winnemucca/Roundtop/Woods loop 20+ times. I saw a lot of families today following your suggested route from campground up to Round Top Lake and back down from Winnemucca. As many times as I have done this, I believe the reverse route is much more friendly, pleasant, etc. The dust, grade, exposure (little shade) and trail(?) condition on the Lost Cabin Mine leg are trying for experienced hikers, never mind folks out for a Sunday stroll. I'd change this recommendation to follow the Woods Lake inlet stream trail up to Lake Winnemucca, over the pass to Roundtop Lake and down to Woods Lake."
